EAA Continues Work on One Waiver Aviation Event Policy
December 13, 2018 - Making it easier for air shows to integrate all the necessary FAA approvals through the “one waiver” system was part of EAA’s efforts at last week’s International Council of Air Shows convention in Las Vegas. The meeting with FAA Flight Standards officials and air show industry leaders built on the prototype “one waiver” authorization at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018.
The one waiver authorization breaks down barriers for air show organizers, who often work with three different FAA offices – Flight Standards, Air Traffic, and Airport – when planning their event. That enhanced communication not only eases complexity for the air shows, it builds working relationships across FAA departments.
“EAA has been working with the Agency on this for about two years now, and after successfully prototyping the one waiver process at AirVenture 2018 and our productive meeting at ICAS we are pleased that the FAA is making progress toward the creation of permanent FAA guidance for inspectors,” EAA vice president of advocacy and safety Sean Elliott said. “The one waiver guideline would be yet another example of EAA working with the FAA to improve an Agency policy for the good of general aviation.”
EAA will continue supporting the FAA in their creation of a new national policy which enables a single waiver for all risk mitigations at aviation events across the country.
